Java GPL'd [Nov. 13th, 2006|07:53 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick

I used to write a lot of Java. Over time I stopped, as it was inconvenient. I couldn't just apt-get it like everything else, and I just felt dirty agreeing to licensing terms before downloading it. And I knew I couldn't redistribute it easily, etc.

Looks like it's time to care about Java again:


I can't believe they went with the GPL and not some CDDL-like stuff. Go Sun. Bravo.

think this will matter?
i mean- most of the people i know who don't use java, don't use it for reasons other than the lack of the VM being open source-
